European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)
The EMFF is the new fund for the EU's maritime and fisheries policies for 2014-2020. It is one of the five European Structural and Investment (ESI) Funds.
The new fund will:
• help fishermen in the transition to sustainable fishing
• support coastal communities in diversifying their economies
• finance projects that create new jobs and improve quality of life along European coasts
• make it easier to access financing.
In the 2014-20 programming period, general provisions for the EMFF are included in the Common Provisions Regulation (1303/2013), which fixes general rules for all ESI Funds.
